A long private driveway, which provides gorgeous views over the Cober Valley to miles of open countryside woodland and the market town of Helston perched on the hillside opposite, leads to the wonderful residence that is Newham House.
The property, which enjoys a high degree of privacy, is believed to have been built circa 1811 for a mine captain, with the original design providing for staff in service. Sympathetically updated and improved by the current owner the dwelling provides many wonderful features including the drawing room with broad bay window, large dining room, two further reception rooms and a kitchen/breakfast room with bespoke Shaker style units. The first floor provides four bedrooms and two bathrooms whilst the second floor provides a suite of bedroom and bathroom.
The grounds are a wonderful combination of formal gardens, fields, meadows and a bluebell wood. The walled kitchen garden is a delight and there is an original greenhouse and outbuilding. The detached two bedroomed cottage, now empty, has been successfully let for many years.
Newham is situated moments from the ancient market town of Helston which is the commercial centre for the Lizard Peninsula. The fishing village of Porthleven with its large harbour and beach is but a short drive away and close by are many glorious miles of coastline with beaches that include Praa Sands, which recently was placed fourth by The Sunday Times in their list of the 50 best beaches in Britain and Ireland. This is a magnificent residence with much to appeal to prospective purchasers.
